8:43am
those things. in terms of bakery products, the kind of things that hostess make, demand has been growing slowly over the last few years. we still buy the products and eat them, but hostess hasn't been able to come up with the kind of product that is we want to buy. in particular in the kind of breads they make. their demand has been declining significantly in the last two years. >> was it no longer profitable for them to make it because americans were not buying enough or was it not profitable enough for them so they thought they would invest elsewhere, or was it labor rules? >> they have been losing money for several years. hostess was in bankruptcy from 2004 to 2009 already. they came out with a plan to revive the company. it didn't work out. some of it may have been labor issues. their labor force may be a
8:44am
little too expensive and inflexible if their own rules, but it was a lack offense innovation and coming up with the kinds of product that is we want to buy that, are healthier, and more in tune with what people in the 21st century want. >> is a large corporation like hostess nationwide still capable of surviving and thriving and providing job to people that they can raise their families with? is that still a reality in america? >> it is. you have a lot of companies within the u.s. making products in the u.s. and are hugely profitable. >> and still providing the types of benefits to their worker that is we consider when we say good jobs? are they still providing that or is it more part-time with less benefit in the in other words, where is the balance between the corporation and the labor in america. >> in the last few years we have seen the balance has gone toward the corporation. labor, especially when we are
8:45am
talking about unskilled labor in general, they are becoming less and less powerful. what we are seeing is that the labor market in the u.s. is getting very fragmented. at the top you have the employees of the googles and the apples who command very big premiums. and at the other end, we have companies like hostess that employee lots of unskilled labor. >> but do they have a future in america? >> they don't have the same kind of future, no. that is one of the things that as a society we have to think about. how do we balance those two very practicingmented markets because -- two very fragmented markets. >> right. because you have apple thriving nonstop and hostess which employees the other end of the spectrum going into bankruptcy. future -- will will be twinkies and things like that on the shevells in the next few years?
8:46am
will somebody take it over? >> somebody will buy the brand and capitol making twinkies and all the other products. they will be available, just made by someone else. pgh will they be made by workers being making enough money or lower wages and benefits. >> that is a good question. i am not sure. >> when they promised jobs in the last presidential campaign what, kind of jobs will they be if you can't operate something like hostess. chances are it has to be a lot more tech al. >> you are -- technical. >> you are talking about california, you may be able to survive on a manufacturing job in the midwest, but it is more difficult here. >> it is. when everybody heard hostess is going out of business they were shocked. everybody remembered twinkies, snowballs, ho-hos, but then you ask the next question, when was the time you had one.
8:47am
everybody stopped and said when i was a kid, or it has been years. so, you have higher labor costs and changing dietary habits. people eat sugar in a different way now. they still it, but in a different way. >> and when it come to hostess hanging on to white bread when everybody is getting excited about wheat and multigrain, there is a lack of changing with the times going on there. next, dreaming of hitting a powerball jackpot, the biggest in the history. and how governor jerry brown will deal with the super majority in sacramento. the political insiders will sound off after this break. brown's next year in office.

9:14am
you could be complaining about it being foggy earlier. a high of 66. if you are heading to the southland, not so bad. partly cloudy skies and 70 at lax off the santa monica freeway. new york partly cloudy and 39. in the bay area in the santa clara valley. 68 degrees. 667 in san mateo. in the east bay, 67 degrees for antioch, 66 for brentwood and 69 in san rafael. north bay mid to upper 60s. a beautiful sunday for much of the bay area once we descend from the fog and low clouds. rain in the bay area late tuesday. wednesday wet and windy 678 will it be on again, off again rain for the bay area right through next weekend. expect things to turn wet beginning of midweek. you heard it here first. >> we will be prepared. thank you. san jose is on the attach
9:15am
for a new top cop. tomorrow the public will get a chance to weigh in. >> for more on what the city is looking for, we turn to campos. what kind of opportunities lie ahead and challenges for the new chief. well, he is retiring. this is an opportunity to bring in a chief that is going to be able to continue some of the work that he did in terms of bringing trust back to our community. but i think it is also an opportunity to really be more honest with the council in terms of what are the affects of cuts. and i think that with crime rising, and that has risen in our city, you can see that cuts have affected whether or not we have enough personnel out there to maintain. >> one of the reasons why the last chief left was he wanted to go -- you guy to take a measure to the voter to raise tax to get more police because you have these tremendous cuts. the council didn't do that.
9:16am
what are you offering the new chief to come in. what sort of plan are you giving the new chief? >> well, i believe that will be one of the things that the new chief is going to have to do. he is going to have to be able to come in, and i think, convince the council to be able to bring in more resources so that they can provide more personnel and boosts on the ground. >> you are part of the council. what cuss it take to convince -- what does it take to convince the council of that. it is a bad state right now for the police in san jose. i am talking to the police officers on the street and it is a bullpenning state of affairs. -- depending state of affairs. it has been very dick. >> it has been difficult. that will be one of the other things this new chief will have to do. the morale in the department is low. he will have that to deal with.
9:17am
he will have to improve on that as well as being able to tell the council what he really needs to be -- he or she -- to be able to just make the community feel much more comfortable that crime will start going down. >> will the council offer this person what he or she needs, because that is part of the problem. he did express that he needed certain things but saw a lot of cuts coming his way and so did the guys on the streets. >> well, as you can tell it has been a divided council. i believe that we need to be able to provide a new chief the resource to be able to do the job effectively. right now our department needs more resources. we need more cuts and to be able to get more police out into our neighborhoods and make our residents feel that much more safe. >> you know, let's go back to the heart of the issue here. that is the pension and pay for
9:18am
police. >> yes. >> that has created tensions within the council because you said you could not afford to pay them, so, you cut. the police union reacted by basically trying to unseat council members. that has to create some tension there is between the police union. so, this new chief, guy or gal, comes in with a split council, a union that is not happy and a political group not happy with the cop's union. it doesn't sound like a great combination. >> and a mayor known as one of the toughest in the area on public employee unions. >> well that, will make it difficult in my opinion to attract the top notch chief. we are doing a nationwide search. i am hope that we can attract enough talent to want to come here. i think we will. it is a desirable place to work. but whoever is ultimately brought in the going to have a tall task. >> indeed, they are. that is why in part whether having community meeting, that is part of the -- i had to say
9:19am
that is part of the process. it is a ritual. we have the meetings and this, and the national search. they will have to make the call. >> we will be following it for you. a new game plan in sacramento, in the meantime, with the democratic super power. >> what will they do with the political advantage? our political insiders sound off, next.
